Patagonia is famous for its fleece recycling program, but did you ever wonder what happens to the used jackets and such? Some of them go to a former Patagonia designer, who transforms them into cases for your iPad or Kindle, in cool charcoal gray with flashes of other colors. Refleece cases are sturdy, water resistant and environmentally friendly; repurposing the fleeces in the US means they're not shipped overseas for recycling, and the low-energy production process uses no new dyes and creates no waste stream. While Refleece is not an official Patagonia product, you can find select Refleece cases at Patagonia stores, as well as other small retailers. Price: $25-$32 (Andy Bender, Forbes Travel Contributor)
